About Landlord and Tenant Disputes
Trying to deal with a problem tenant can be a frustrating and thankless exercise. It can also be extremely serious and can lead to various issues that can negatively impact you, including:
- Being denied access to your property
- Being owed money by your tenant
- Falling into arrears with your mortgage
The relevant laws governing the relationship between landlord and tenant can seem to provide greater protection for problem tenants and place more and more obligations on the landlord. Landlords could find themselves paying out to defend an unwarranted claim, or to recover their property, which could be even more frustrating if a tenant is in receipt of Legal Aid.
Either a breach of obligations or a conflict of interests is usually to blame for a landlord and tenant dispute. This could involve, for example, the tenant falling into arrears with their rent or if they have sub-let part of the property. Expert legal advice is therefore required to make sure the dispute is brought to the right conclusion, and done so quickly.
